Interactive Reception 450x300

Looking to host a memorable experience that involves food, learning and fun? In addition to our popular culinary team-building workshop where your team prepares and enjoys a multi-course meal together, SAIT offers the Interactive Reception.

What is an Interactive Reception?

Held at our beautiful SAIT Culinary Campus in the heart of downtown Calgary, the Interactive Reception is a different spin on the standard cocktail/reception function. Based on your specific requirements, we create a fun and relaxed social environment built around interactive food stations facilitated by our SAIT professional chefs and their award-winning hospitality students.

Your guests are able to mingle, network or team-build as they rotate through the various stations set up in our million-dollar kitchen, bar and dining area. They are able to observe, learn and engage as much or as little as they want in the preparation and tasting of unique culinary delights.

As our many returning clients will attest, this SAIT "Educated Cuisine" experience does not disappoint.

Planning Considerations

  • Events typically run from two to three hours and can be arranged for weekends, afternoons or evenings
  • Our facility can hold up to 120 people
  • We can arrange up to five interactive stations
  • We can customize the food stations to your specifications including menus that meet individual food requirements/preferences (non-dairy, gluten-free, etc.)
  • Bar and sommelier services available

Station Options

We offer delicious savory and sweet options for the interactive stations – everything from risotto to sushi to the brownie/blondie sundae bar. We also offer the sommelier station where you can learn more about food and beverage pairings.
